Haiku Friday – Color & Warmth

9 Jun

“Sunrise paints the sky with pinks and the sunset with peaches. Cool to warm. So is the progression from childhood to old age.”

~ Vera Nazarian


Hello everyone! Welcome to Haiku Friday on The Writer Next Door blog.


by Vashti Q


Dawn draws back her veil

Pink and orange sunrise hues

Set our skies aflame

There is a new beginning

I shall awake into dream

“Let the beauty of sunrise, keep your heart warm.”

~ Lailah Gifty Akita


UPDATE: I received the proofs for my book cover and I’m very excited! I can’t wait to show it to you! Book Cover Reveal –– Coming Soon!

    I loved these Vashti. My two favorite scenes in life sunsets and sunrises and you’ve illustrated them beautifully through your words. And yay, kudos on the book cover. Can’t wait! ❤ xx

      Hello Debby! Thank you very much. Nature is wonderful. I’m looking forward to the solar eclipse coming soon. I believe it’ll happen August 21st.. Day will turn to night for a couple of minutes. I’m very excited about the book cover. It’s like being pregnant and finding out the sex of the baby! Ha, ha! ❤ xx

    Beautiful haiku for one of my favourite settings. Will there be virtual reality champagne flowing for the revelation?

      Ha, ha! You just gave me a brilliant idea, Denis! Virtual champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. 😛 I know you love your sunrises and sunsets, so I’m happy you enjoyed the poem. 😀 xx

        I will have one strawberry thanks. Sunsets yes, sunrises another story however I saw my first one in 2 years this morning, but that explanation comes with an imminent haiku.
